The gas station in town has a mart that sells a 20-ounce coffee for a $1.69. It’s got an urn that says Extra Bold. And it’s got shelves of free stuff you can mix in with the coffee. They have these creamer-packet sized shots of espresso called SToK. The label on SToK warns you to keep it to two packets a day.
It started off small, but I’ve been doubling down in the Extra Bold. I get home and it’s either fire off 1,000 words or take apart a transistor radio. I tied some flies but had to wait on the epoxy until my hands stopped shaking.
Highly productive, but the comedown involves sitting in a dark room listening to Mountain Jam.
